Kevin Frazier Sits Down with Kobe Bryant

Glad we’re not alone. Looking over the teaser announcement for Wednesday night’s debut of Connected With… Kobe Bryant on Time Warner Cable SportsNet, we were immediately struck by the following excerpt:

On retiring: “I could play another five years. That’s not to say I will.”

Say what!? Veteran Laker watchers have all bandied about the time frame of two to three years. This latest reminder of Bryant’s super-human physical specimen qualities, from the specimen himself, is new and as also noted at Lakers Nation by Daniel Buerge, jaw-dropping. Maybe this is Bryant’s way of letting interested Chinese parties know that he will be ready and able to suit up over there around the fall of 2015.

Applauding the Mad PR Skills of Kris Jenner

When a three-Kardashian media circus is once again expertly choreographed, who should ultimately get the blame, besides a complicit media? The prize lion (Kris Humphries)? No. The exotic contortionist (Kim Kardashian)? No. The tent pole provider (Ryan Seacrest)? Nope.

As The Insider co-host Kevin Frazier accurately pointed out this morning on “The Dan Patrick Show,” the person who deserves the finger-point is the masterful, straight-faced promoter, sitting center high, middle section. That would be mom Kris Jenner or, as Frazier described her, “a P.T. Barnum for the modern age.”

And while Barnum may never have actually said “there’s a sucker born every minute,” it seems more than likely that at some point when the E! cameras were not rolling, Jenner has gleefully muttered something to the effect of “there’s a reality TV rube around each corner.” Perhaps even as she was spreadsheet-ing the $17.9 million reportedly grossed from a fake wedding.

New Jay Mohr Talk Show Sounds More Like a Sitcom

Here’s a familiar plot line: a wacky, outspoken TV talk show host clashes repeatedly with his wife, who is also producing the program. But each week, in the end, laughs and some lessons about matrimony prevail.

That’s the accidental sitcom context of Jay Mohr‘s latest non-sitcom project, which for his sake we hope lasts longer than his sitcoms. Beginning September 7, Mohr will talk up three topics at a time on FUEL TV for something called Master Debaters with Jay Mohr, under the watchful eye of producer-wife Nikki CoxPer the press release:

Mohr is joined weekly by a panel that includes former Major League outfielder Eric Byrnes and comedian Na’im Lynn. Special guests including Ron Artest, Michael Rapaport, Mark McGrath, Jason Ellis, Bryan Callen, Kevin Frazier, Jeremy Roenick, and Ralphie May join in the group discussions each week.

ET Correspondent Not Surprised by Reports of Ted Williams LA Altercation

Filling in this morning as host on Dan Patrick‘s nationally syndicated AM sports talk radio show, Entertainment Tonight correspondent (and former Patrick ESPN cubicle mate) Kevin Frazier (pictured) was in a unique position to comment on a report in the LA Times of an altercation last night at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel involving golden-voiced wonder Ted Williams.

Frazier spent Saturday tagging along with Williams around LA for an ET report. He told radio listeners that it was almost inevitable something like the reported hotel argument between Williams and one of his daughters would happen.
